Komodo Showcasing Multi-Chain Architecture: Z-Transaction Functionality Is Moving To A New Interlinked Chain

We’re making some important changes to our main chain which showcase how adaptable our blockchain technology is. I recommend reading our newly posted article written by @Daniel CP “Komodo Showcasing Multi-Chain Architecture: Z-Transaction Functionality Is Moving To A New Interlinked Chain” to get up to speed.

Here’s How Komodo (KMD) Deals With 51% Attacks — Explains Founder & Core Developer James Lee

“The news of Ethereum Classic (ETC) getting 51% attacked spread like a wildfire just recently. Following this hack, questions began to raise regarding the security levels of various Proof-of-Work (PoW) employing chains. Is there a major flaw floating around in the PoW framework? Is there a workaround that can minimize the damage caused by such attacks? Komodo (KMD) seems to have employed a solution that might help in case of a 51% attack, the Delayed Proof-of-Work (dPoW).

Why are exchanges the primary target for double spend attacks?

Excellent Twitter thread by Haseeb Qureshi @hosseeb explaining 51% attacks and why exchanges are the primary target for a double spend attack, both of which can be countered by Komodo’s delayed proof of work. This is a great thread to point people to when you’re in a conversation.
